Sid W. Richardson Foundation
The Sid W. Richardson Foundation is a philanthropic organization, founded in 1947 by Sid W. Richardson (1891 - 1959), a Texan who earned his fortune in the oil industry. The foundation was primarily funded after his death.
Today, the foundation focuses on public-private partnerships in the area of education, health, human services, and arts groups, to which it has donated about $300 million. The charter of the foundation stipulated that recipients be in the state of Texas.
The foundation is housed in the same building as the Sid Richardson Museum which features Remington and Russell paintings collected by Sid W. Richardson.
